I recently had the pleasure of chatting with long time friend (since junior high!) and incredibly talented, Scott Phillip Goergens.
Scott is an accomplished artist and film maker.
You can learn more about him below, through this write up he shared, and then enjoy watching the video of our chat!
Scott Philip Goergens (b. 1973) grew up outside Baltimore, and after many moves across the country he now lives back in the city. Scott was awarded an art scholarship from the state of Maryland with the guidance of his High School teacher Olin Yoder. He used the scholarship to receive a general associate’s degree from Catonsville Community College (1993), where he concentrated electives in some art courses and chose to continue his art career on his own by developing his skills in various mediums and styles – learning from trial and error with acrylic, oil, sculpture, ink, and watercolor. With his husband, Scott lived in San Francisco, Boston, North Carolina, and Norfolk, but it wasn’t until moving back to his hometown of Baltimore, Maryland did he complete his first painting series and land his first public show in 2001.
Scott is also a writer (You Are Now Leaving Torporville – Vantage Press 2004) and an award winning filmmaker (29 Needles – 2019 “Best of the Festival – Nightmares Film Festival).
Scott worked as a Casting Associate for Emmy award winning Pat Moran, CSA from 2010-2017 and during that time period she received many nominations and awards – as well as two more Emmy wins for HBO’s VEEP and HBO’s Game Change.
In 2018 Scott and his husband opened Gallery Blue Door to complement and add to the cultural landscape of his neighborhood of Mount Vernon, Baltimore.
He is currently writing his next feature film and working on artwork for a collaborative oracle deck with soul expansion coach and energy healer Jacqueline Hopper, called The Oracle of Zeda.
Gallery Blue Door:
Established in 2018, Gallery Blue Door is a boutique contemporary fine art gallery in Mount Vernon – The Cultural District and heart of Baltimore. We primarily highlight emerging and established artists, and regularly exhibit work from regional and East Coast artists, but are expanding our reach. From 2018 to the end of 2021 the gallery hosted six exhibits a year, with one of them being a two person exhibition. Gallery Blue Door is now divided to allow 3 rotating solo exhibits at once, with a fourth space for a permanent exhibit from the gallery owner and director Scott Philip Goergens. This new format allows more artists to exhibit throughout the year with exciting crossovers. Our mission is to support artists, and bring joy to visitors and collectors through art. Bringing happiness into hearts and homes.
The gallery is on the first floor of an unassuming home built in 1842 and meanders the length of the building providing a unique experience for the patron. Wall colors were selected by historic paint expert Matthew J. Mosca, and designer Henry Johnson. The gallery is owned and operated by artist Scott Philip Goergens and his husband Scott Howard. It is our goal to keep art and culture strong in the neighborhood and Baltimore in general.
